      Hi,


      Fine by me, his raise size on the turn makes sense and even tho it's hard for him to show up with a strong hand like 3x, he could still have decided to play AA/KK/22 this way. Even if he happens to be raising a draw, one of the flushdraws will get there half the time on the river making it gross for you to call another bet out of position even if he has nothing, and he will have the flush sometimes.

      Hence it's generally a lot safer to fold the turn when you don't even know if he's raising semibluffs there, rather than starting to guess for stacks against an unknown out of position.


      Hope it helps.
